    Tank Capacity 184 quattro

    Here is a question, the manual states that the tank capacity is 55L in the A3 Quattro, however I usually run down to 0-20 miles using the Range readout. However when filling up ive never been able to get more than 50L into the tank. Now I fully understand that the range read out isn't accurate however it seam to me to be way out.

    So the question is : What's the highest amount of diesel you have squeezed into your tank ?


    p.s the norm for me is 415-420 miles per tank, running on Shell Ultima.

    The car doesn't cut out when you hit 0 miles to empty. You still have a good few L left in there.

    All Audi cars read 0 with 1 gallon left in the tank in reserve, so yes, pretty much 50-51l back into the 55l tank when your computer reads 0.
